Amy Schumer & Serena Williams Pose for Pirelli Calendar 2016 - Check Out Behind-the-Scenes Photos!

Amy Schumer snaps a photo with famed photographer Annie Leibovitz while behind-the-scenes of her shoot for the 2016 Pirelli Calendar.

The 34-year-old comedian and actress is joined in the spread by tennis pro Serena Williams, Selma‘s Ava Duvernay, Russian model Natalia Vodianova, film producer Kathleen Kennedy, Chinese actress Yao Chen, activist Yoko Ono, businesswoman Mellody Hobson, author Fran Lebowitz, philanthropist Agnes Gund, musician Patti Smith, visual artist Shrin Nesha, and magazine editor Tavi Gevinson.

“I started to think about the roles that women play, women who have achieved something. I wanted to make a classic set of portraits,” Annie said. “I thought that the women should look strong but natural and I decided to keep it a very simple exercise of shooting in the studio. This calendar is so completely different. It is a departure. The idea was not to have any pretense in these pictures and be very straightforward.”
